VIDEO: Food Addictive As Cocaine?

For a long time now we’ve been looking at the potentially addictive properties of food and how they may be contributing to the obesity epidemic, but, we’ve lacked the hard science to back it up. Now we’re getting a better look into the forces at play here with a study conducted at the New Balance Foundation Obesity Center. The study looked at how foods with a high glycemic index, a measure of how quickly blood sugar levels spike after consumption, affect the desire to eat again soon. To conduct the test they gave obese participants two different types of milkshakes which both tasted just as good, but had very different glycemic index values.
